Random Monday Morning Thoughts




  • You know, "Cabin in the Woods" sounds like it might be pretty good. 
  • I got sucked in to quite a few Titanic specials yesterday. (Thought: I wonder what it would cost to rebuild the Titaninc and put it in service today?) 
  • I miss that Little Ceaser's guy who would say, "Pizza! Pizza!"
  • The feds are re-trying Roger Clemens for perjury beginning today. And they are using five prosecutors. Good grief.
  • I finally saw "Bridesmaids" over the weekend. Funny, funny stuff. 
  • Hayden Panettiere playing tennis in a bikini.
  • Because temperatures might be in the 80s in Boston today, marathon organizers are allowing any runner to defer participating until next year.  I can't see many going to the trouble and expense to get to Boston taking them up on that offer. 
  • My hair is getting long, but deciding to grow it out in the windy Spring was a dumb idea. I've got to wearing a visor on weekends because Mrs. LL says I'm "not a cap guy."  Edit: Hey!! If it is good enough for Steve Spurrier, it's good enough for me. 
  • A 21 year old from Rhome is in the obituaries. What happened?
  • I'm not sure I've ever seen so much early warning for tornadoes in the Midwest -- a warning that was dead on. 
  • The Marlins finally hit a home run so we got to see what that awful looking contraption in the outfield actually does. Idiocracy.
  • Fox 4 News at 9:00 last night was an epic train wreck. For some reason, they couldn't get any video to play so they were left to vamp and stretch things out. After 30 minutes, they abandoned the news altogether. But the anchors were very good sports about it.

Hayden has some misshapen boobies, and appears to be smuggling a sausage. Maybe it's a clenis.

The marlins thing is dumber than the astros' train full of oranges.

Why would someone your age grow his hair out? Why would someone your age wear a visor, unless it was green, he had a cigar, and he was counting his winnings?

Seriously, lawyers who grow their hair out give me tired head.

Today's RTG is a fairly recent repeat.

I'm glad they're going after Clemens. I hate that lying bastard, and they need to go after Bonds and that red-headed faggot, whatever his name was.

Come on Barry! Please post the FB post from Decatur’s Main Street director. The taxpayers are paying her to promote businesses downtown, and she is telling people to “avoid” crowds on the square for her own personal gain. I think it needs to be public knowledge she is waiting tables at the restaurant in Greenwood. Did she learn that from one of the many conventions Decatur pays for her to attend?

I don't know if I count as part of the "Public" in "Public Knowlege", but I think that most of the people that know Frieda are aware that she is having to work two jobs to make ends meet. Also, if you look at all of her posts, you will find that she is constantly promoting Decatur and Wise County. Don't know where your sour grapes are coming from, but attacking this hard working woman isn't helpfull for the City or the County.

It's OK to prosecute Clemens but don't bring charges against the Black Panthers for intimidation at polling places or putting a bounty on a private citizen. Holder should be the one on trial.

Don't know you or her, but you are very rude to attack this woman who seems to be a very valuable citizen to Decatur and Wise County...shame on you...you should apologize..in this town your reputation is at great risk...from a transplanted Fort Worth girl with a good reputation for keeping her nose clean in this county.

Well, after reading the comments here, I went to the FB page. It wasn't a smart post by Frieda especially since she is paid to drive business in downtown. I grew up here, and have known Frieda for a long time. I like her. She made a poor posting decision. I wish we had more things to do on the square, not sure if she's in charge of that or not. But then again, nobody on the square ever wants to be open past 2 pm or on weekend evenings. South Beach closed because of terrible hours. I can see why 949 points out Frieda's post, but I can see why others defend her, too. Maybe the city should make more of an effort to drive business in the entire city, period.

I know Frieda, she does a pretty good job as Main Street Coordinator and makes really good money, not sure waitressing is helping her make "ends meat". She should not have made that comment on facebook, whether or not it's her personal page. Making comments on facebook and twitter have ended a lot of careers, just saying!!

What's wrong with the Frieda comment? As she said she can promote all of Wise County if she wants.

If I had a shop downtown, I wouldn't want people told to avoid crowds.... I don't she meant it that way, but it kinda looked that way.

OK, some of you have no idea what you're talking about. Until you have a a business on the square, keep your comments to yourself.

I have had a business there and I am one of many who are no longer there. The help from Frieda and the chamber is not what you would expect. Oh, sure, there are things on the square from time to time, but never during business hours. Then merchants are criticized for not being open when these events occur. The merchants have a life and posted hours.
But when a business decides to leave, Frieda never visits those merchants to see what's going on. Maybe an encouraging word would be all that's needed to persuade some to stay.
the city isn't getting its money's worth with Main Street. She is supposed to be promoting downtown first, not Greenwood. I don't care if she has a second job and invites people out there, but to say avoid the crowds downtown is a slap in the face to downtown merchants. Every time I tried to contact her, she was out of town, at another convention. It's time this program was revisited.
Don't even get me started on the chamber and its downtown relationship, or lack of one.

Anonymous said...

Why would a business owner expect someone else to promote or bring them "business" in the first place? Looks like some physical responsibly is missing.

Business's who are not within the city limits sure don't depend on someone else to bring people in their doors.

Sounds like a lot of creativity is missing from one's self or they are a Democrat expecting everyone else to take care of them.

Just say'n

Anonymous said...

She doesn't promote all of wise county! That is baloney! How many of you have been prompted to shop at the Chico mart, eat a burger in Rhome , or to smoke Newark world famous meth? But on a serious note the Decatur square is a waste of money.

Anonymous said...

I am a4:04 and I did not rely on Frieda to promote my business. I paid plenty of money to do that. But she is being paid to promote the square and if she isn't doing that, then...............
And I'm not a Democrat. I work hard for my money and for their welfare.

And I believe the word you're looking for is "fiscal." I used lots of both types of responsibility.

Decatur wastes more money on the Chamber, Main Street, and all the other "programs" than the Obama administrastion ever dreamed of! They all claim to be religious republicans and yet have more Decatur social programs that the TAXPAYER is forced to pay for than any liberal agenda I have ever seen. Cousins employing cousins.

Anonymous said...

I hope that you are satified Shari! You have opened a can of worms that did not deserve to be opened. What you need to first realize is that Freida posted on her OWN personal facebook page! Period, should be end of story, but you had to take it from FB to the good ole' blog to try and cause more undue trouble.
Well give yourself a big pat on the back, because you are stirring it up. Lie after lie! Freida post many different events, such as thousands of other people do daily on their OWN personal FB page! You just chose to make a mountain out of a mole hill. You must be so miserable with yourself, that you have to cause trouble for Freida. Is your businesss really that slow?? What,.... do you want her job? Well, if your think your business was slow before your rude, incorrect, and uncalled for comments about Freida, just wait until you see how many people avoid your store now! As for you people who comment about the lack of help from the Chamber & Main Street, stop it! Shame on you!! Misty & Freida work their fingers to the bone and are always dedicated to making Decatur shine in any project they are given to benifit the citizens and Merchants of Decatur and I personally want to thank both of these woman for the fantastic job they do! Another thing that you need to realize is, in this day and age, there are always going to be people that are so unhappy with theirself that there is NO POSSIBLE WAY TO PLEASE THEM!

I AM NOT blaming Frieda for my leaving the square. I'm just saying that if we're paying her money to promote it, that's what she should be doing. She creates a lot of flurry, but little product.

And I don't care if she has a second job either. But she needs to remember the job that mainly supports her is the on the square. Some of you are missing the point of the whole FB stir.
She is paid to do MAIN STREET, which is bounded by nine city blocks. To tell people to avoid the crowds on the square seems counterproductive.

I don't know Sherri but I don't think her comment stirred up this, it sounds like Frieda just needs to do her job that she is PAID good money ( Iknow what this position makes, I worked for the city. She does do good at brining events at night to the square but as far as promoting the businesses I don't think she does a darn thing and neither does the chamber. Her and Misty are both too worried about what people think, what outfit they have on and if their hair and botox makes them look like they are still young. We could be like Grandbury but until people that are PAID do their jobs and until the lazy lawyers are'nt allowed to take up everything parking spot on the square nothing will change. The people that own businesses do advertise/promote as much as they or the wallets can.

Frieda changed her fb name and deleted the post...poof, it's gone.Now how many of her 871 friends really saw the post. You Shari are just a little blip in one of her days on fb now. Ha!

The only reason Decatur "shines" is because it is surrounded by New Fairview. That Shari girl had a legitimate post. Why should we pay these Democrat bashing so called religious right moral majority holier than thou Decatur elite OUR tax money for their socialist programs? They hate Socialism yet PROMOTE it and make us pay for it!!!! That is a waste of time, dollars and yes the Mexicans are taking over Decatur anyway. In 10 years all these big dicks you see in the Messenger will be moving out of the city limits to get away from "Little Laredo", and take their money they made off these social programs with them! There will always be someone to make money off Decatur through these forced programs and people are getting tired of it. What benefit does promoting the square do for the citizen? Not much at all. Your money is better spent with VOLUNTARY donations to good groups like the Lions Club, Band Boosters etc. Stop socialism in Decatur!!!!

Got to love those people who don't and open a business then complain about the surroundings, parking, etc. when it was that way when they moved in.

That's like buying a home next to the railroad tracks and complain about the train.

Believe me, the stores do their own promoting. We didn't ask for a Main Street director, the city just started this program over 16 years ago and still it continues. That's her job, promote the Main Street district. If she isn't going to do it, the stores will still keep on as they are. But to tell people to avoid the square seems like it isn't helping the crowds much. Especially when it 2 weeks, she'll be asking people to come to the square on Saturday night for the car show. Go figure.
